Lyrics:

do they sing
or do the birds cry out in pain?

do they come
or do the right words hide under your tongue these days?

when you're blue
when you're aching in the sheets

is it you, the mask,
the unkind glance, the truth in glass you need?

you beg me to break your heart
to play the part
you beg me to break your heart

want it more
than we ever could admit
glowing momentary glimpses we can fracture to make fit

and the things that scare you
all will disappear
when you're done beating drums and ringing sirens in my ears

you beg me to break your heart
to play the part
you beg me to break your heart
